About Kadampa Festivals

Every year the New Kadampa Tradition ~ International Kadampa Buddhist Union (NKT~IKBU) organizes worldwide Kadampa gatherings on Buddhism and meditation that explain how to apply Buddha’s teachings (Dharma) to modern life. These include International Festivals, National Festivals, and regional Dharma Celebrations.

The events vary in length from two days to two weeks, but however long or short, they all offer a break with a difference – a chance to break free from the hectic routines of daily life and focus on the things that really matter.
